Our first interview!! In this special series we interview Michelle Pijanowski, who is embarking on an incredible coast-to-coast train trip! Meet Michelle!!!
Hi! My name’s Michelle, but you can call me The Intern. [Today], I’ll be setting out to travel from coast to coast by train.
I’ve always been big into travel, but in Canada I had mostly only seen British Columbia and Alberta. As luck would have it, I was one of the few people that got their hands on the Via Rail Canada 150 Youth Passes that came out a few months ago.
When I was researching where I was gonna go with this pass, I spent a lot of time looking at different places on Google. That was when it occurred to me that I had hardly seen my home country. I’d been to Europe seven or eight times, but hadn’t even seen Saskatchewan (I’m from Calgary, so that’s my neighbour) with my own eyes. I realized that I can’t be the only one that hasn’t seen this amazing country we get to call home so, I decided to document my journey. If you’re like me, I want to give you a chance to see what Canada’s all about and better yet, I hope I can get you excited enough to check it out yourself.
This is where I’ll be stopping:
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Moncton, New Brunswick, Charlottetown, PEI, Quebec City, Quebec, Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa, Ontario, Toronto, Ontario, Niagara, Ontario, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Jasper, Alberta, Vancouver, British Columbia, Victoria, British Columbia
